Oreo and Chocolate Chips Cookies

I got a pack of oreo left from making oreo brownie a while ago and nobody in my family happened to like eating it plain..so I forcefully came up with an idea of making it into cookie (a thing that I rarely make!)..and yeah,as if it's not cookie itself ! lol..

With a little effort, I managed to get some recipes of oreo cookies through the google and chose the one that I found interesting most!

The cookies were good! Although it's not a soft and chewy type as I prefer but it's not too crispy either..I was pleased to feel and taste oreo in every single bite of it. Anyway, my cookies appeared to be slightly salty which I guess it might be the result of the less sugar I used or it's far too much called for in the original reciped..

The recipe ( adapted from here )

170 g unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup bread flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
a 150g pack oreo, coarsely chopped/broken
some semi sweet chocolate chips

Method:

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat butter and sugars until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs and mix until combined.

2. In a separate bowl, stir together the flours, soda, salt, baking powder and cream of tartar. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and stir until incorporated. Stir in the oreo and chocolate chips by hands.

3. Scoop tablespoonful of the dough out and shape into balls. Place balls on parchment lined or non-stick cookie sheet, 2 inches aparted and flatten tops slightly. You don’t want to flatten it too much, you just don’t want it to look like a ball. Bake for about 15 minutes or until brown around the edges. Cool slightly on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to set: remove from baking sheet. Cool on wire rack. Makes about 25-30 cookies.

I've definitely done this before, but made the cookies in bar-form. So so delicious. :)

Cookie cookies yay! One time I tried to substitute part of the flour in chocolate chip cookies with dried-out ground chocolate chip cookies. The levels were a bit off, so they didn't hold their cookie shape, but it was a fun and still tasty experiment :)
